Big Tech and Big Pharma Merge: Oracle Takes Over Vaccine Data World

As pandemic countermeasures obliterate the middle class and civil rights, Silicon Valley’s billionaire robber barons are cashing in on the global economic collapse and the rise of the surveillance state.

Now, one of these tech titans — a man with deep ties to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) — has claimed the golden ring: the key contract to manage all the personal, health and financial data that will allow government and industry to keep us in line as they build their New World Order.

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison will curate the vast datasets that house our medical, financial and personal information enabling Big Brother to track and trace our movements, our purchases, our preferences and our vulnerabilities, and use that information to control civil populations, suppress dissent and punish disobedience.

Ellison, whose estimated net worth of $87.7 billion makes him the seventh-richest individual in the world, has just achieved a long-sought milestone. On Dec.15, Oracle, the tech company Ellison founded in 1977 with help from the CIA, issued a press release announcing it “will serve as the CDC’s [U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] central data repository for all vaccination data in the U.S. This ‘national clearing house’ system will receive data from all U.S. jurisdictions administering vaccinations.”

Almost 20 years since Ellison, in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attack, offered the government a proposal for a national security database “that collected everything possible to identify someone,” the mogul appears to finally be sitting on cloud nine.

Oracle’s National Electronic Health Records Cloud dates back to the beginnings of the COVID-19 pandemic. In March 2020, a couple of weeks after letting President Trump use his estate near Palm Springs for a $100,000-a-plate golfing fundraiser, Ellison placed a call to the White House. According to a Forbes cover story on Ellison, he “asked Trump if a clearinghouse existed for real-time data about treatment efficacies and outcomes.”

Within a week after the president asked “how much?” and Ellison said, “for free,” the tech titan had brought together a team of Oracle engineers “to build a database and website registering coronavirus cases” and work with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other agencies.

This could all have been prevented: How mental health experts were silenced

There is an unambiguous reason why mental health experts have not been seen or heard or read in the national media during the past four years. The mainstream media has intentionally blocked these experts from speaking out about Donald Trump’s mental pathology and its dangerous impact on the public’s safety and welfare. The professionals who understand Trump the best have been gagged and muzzled. The media has been a major enabler of Trump — and that continues to this day.

Mental health experts could have helped to prevent Trump’s election in 2016, minimized his destructiveness from 2016 to 2020, and/or thwarted his re-election chances in 2020. Their collective voices could have been loud, compelling and impactful. History will show that the mainstream media has been as complicit with Donald Trump as any other group of enablers, including congressional Republicans, cabinet members, close associates and his millions of supporters.

The role of the free press is vital in a representative democracy such as ours. It is protected in the First Amendment of the Constitution. The overarching purpose of the press is to be a watchdog of government and of our elected officials. The press is our indispensable friend. We depend on it to expose, inform, explain, interpret and, yes, warn. The free press is the foundation of our democratic way of life. It is what separates us from authoritarian regimes and third world countries.

Man hurls insults at Angel Supermart employee over alcohol: ‘I’m S’porean, don’t talk about mask

A man who was not wearing a mask caused a scene at Angel Supermart on Sunday (Jan 3) after his request to exchange two bottles of alcohol for another brand of liquor was denied.

The incident took place at the outlet at 37 Miltonia Close, which is located in the premises of Skies Miltonia condominium, at about 4.30am.

A video of what happened was uploaded to Angel Supermart’s Facebook page, after Daniel, who is the boss of the store, felt frustrated at how his employee was being treated.

Daniel told Stomp that the customer came in during the wee hours of the night to exchange his bottles of alcohol for another brand of liquor.

However, Daniel explained that such exchanges cannot be done, especially since the items are bottles of liqour and the sale of alcohol is prohibited after 10.30pm.

When the employee tried to explain the situation to the customer, the latter got agitated and did not hold back on the insults.

Doctor Erases Nearly 200 Cancer Patients’ Medical Debt Worth $650,000

One Arkansas Oncologist is giving a gift to nearly 200 cancer patients as he is erasing their medical debt which totals to $650,000, according to Good Morning America.

Dr. Omar Atiq closed his cancer clinic, the Arkansas Cancer Clinic, in Pine Bluff in early 2020 after nearly three decades in business. After closing his practice, he worked with a billing company to try and close outstanding accounts, but ultimately he decided to instead erase their debt, according to Good Morning America.

“Over time I realized that there are people who just are unable to pay,” Atiq told “Good Morning America.” “So my wife and I, as a family, we thought about it and looked at forgiving all the debt…We saw that we could do it and then just went ahead and did it.”

He announced the special debt cancellation in his holiday greeting to former patients, according to Fox 16.

“I hope this note finds you well. The Arkansas Cancer Clinic was proud to serve you as a patient. Although various health insurances pay most of the bills for majority of patients, even the deductibles and co-pays can be burdensome,” the statement read. “Unfortunately, that is the way our health care system currently works. Arkansas Cancer Clinic is closing its practice after over 29 years of dedicated service to the community. The clinic has decided to forego all balances owed to the clinic by its patients. Happy Holidays.”

14 Top Foods for Immunity Support So You Can Stay Well During Cold and Flu Season

As temperatures get cooler, do you want to know how to optimize your immune system? Discover some of the best foods for immunity support and which supplements you might want to take. The right foods can help you avoid falling victim to colds and flu this year!

Do you sometimes get colds or the flu, particularly in the colder winter months? If so, you’re not alone. In the U.S., the average adult gets sick two to four times per year, and the average child between six and eight.

You probably know the basics of cold prevention, like practicing good hand washing and avoiding contact with sick peers. But have you ever wondered why two people could have exactly the same exposure to a sick friend — and one of them gets sick, while the other doesn’t?

The difference is often their immune system.

So how can you give your immune system support? It turns out that one of the most powerful tools for a strong immune system is your diet.

Let’s take a look at what your immune system does and how to support your immune system with food, so it can protect you from nasty, cold-weather bugs.

What is the Immune System?

The immune system is your body’s network of organs, tissues, and cells that work together to keep you healthy by fighting off harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi. It acts as a barrier between your body and the things that can make you sick.

When your immune system is compromised, it’s like tearing down a wall that would otherwise help to keep germs at bay.

Your immune system can become compromised by dietary, environmental, and lifestyle insults. And a compromised immune system can lead to frequent illness, such as the common cold and flu, as well as more serious infections and diseases, even including cancer.

Your complex and amazing defense system is made up of two main parts. First, you have mucous membranes found in places like your nose, eyes, and mouth — which use white blood cells to fight infections before they can get inside you. Second, you have T cells and B cells, which work together to create antibodies that fight off invaders and then destroy infected cells throughout your body.

Your bone marrow and spleen also play key roles, making white blood cells which fight infections. And your lymphatic system transports lymph (a fluid containing white blood cells) throughout your body.

Altogether, your immune system functions as an amazing team, working to keep you healthy, safe, and alive.

HELP ME HAYLEY UPDATE: A van stolen from quadriplegic man battling cancer has been found

SPOKANE, Wash. – Late last month, our Help Me Hayley was asked to feature a stolen van in her series. The specialty, custom vehicle belongs to a quadriplegic who is currently battling cancer and undergoing chemotherapy. The victim told Hayley the theft was absolutely gut wrenching.

“I’ve had it since 2014,” Jason Tordale said. “It’s my lifeline.”

The van has special customizations designed for Tordale so he can safely drive.

The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country van was taken from the victim’s home near East Boone Ave in Spokane Valley.  The victim says he has no idea how the crooks were able to do it.

“It had all the controls just right for me so I can drive it with my wheelchair,” Jason said. “I need it to get to my appointments. Without it, I can’t go anywhere.”

The heartbreaking story was shared by hundreds of you trying to help. The community support meant the world to the many loved ones of Jason. On Sunday, they got the call they had been praying for. The van had been recovered.

“I did see the ramp in the van, so I was extra worried, we knew this wasn’t just a normal vehicle,” said Northwest Seed and Pet assistant manger Sam Longanecker. “Our employee called crime check after seeing the abandoned vehicle in our parking lot.”

Common Anti-Diarrhea Drug Can Induce Death Of Aggressive Brain Cancer Cells

A common drug that is usually prescribed to treat diarrhea may also be a powerful weapon against an aggressive type of brain cancer, suggests a new study published in the journal Autophagy. Loperamide, sold under the brand name Imodium, has previously been shown to induce cell death of glioblastoma cells, but the mechanism remained unknown until now.

In this latest study, the researchers found a pathway by which the drug induces the cells to self-destruct, called autophagy which means “self-eating”. By upregulating a gene that promotes cell death of glioblastoma cell lines, loperamide may be a promising drug candidate, which they now hope will open up new avenues to combat the deadly form of cancer.

“Our experiments with cell lines show that autophagy could support the treatment of glioblastoma brain tumours,” says lead author Dr Sjoerd van Wijk in a statement.
